A survey of empirical studies using transaction level data on exports and imports.
Abstract: This paper presents a tabular survey of 146 empirical
studies for 39 countries, plus 8 studies for multiple countries, that use
transaction level data on exports or imports of firms. I hope this survey
is useful for readers who want to get an impression of the huge number of
different topics that have been investigated with transaction level data
for a large number of countries already; who want to learn whether
transaction level data have already been used for a particular (maybe,
their own) country, by whom they have been used to investigate which
topics, and what the important results found are; who have access to
transaction level data and an idea how to use them, and who want to find
out whether others pursued the same or a similar topic already; who want to
compare results from their own study based on transaction level data to
results from other (similar, neighbor) countries and who are looking for
suitable studies; who have access to transaction level data and who are
looking for studies based on data from other countries that they can
replicate with their data to uncover and investigate differences across
countries, or to contribute to the unravelling of stylized facts that hold
across countries (and time).
